Craig Mahood


I am currently living in Lesmahagow having spent much of my life in Livingston. I currently study at the University of Stirling where I will be going into the third year of my Journalism Studies course. I returned back to education after a string of restaurant and customer service jobs to pursue a career in a sport I love.

After a period of work experience with the Scottish Sun I was offered a casual job as a digital sports reporter which I was extremely proud to receive. I have been doing that a short period of time but it further enhanced my desire to do this on a professional basis.

Getting involved with Newmains United has been great so far. The players I have spoken to and done features on have been very welcoming and the feedback I have been getting is positive too.

Unfortunately the first game I was going to cover was the Saturday after all football was shut down in Scotland so I’m excited for football to return and get involved more with the club!
